Wasn’t the old Facebook chat (the pop-up style) better than the new fixed sidebar style chat. Off-course it was! I am sure many of the users simply logged on to FB for keeping up with their social life via the chat system. And with the introduction of the latest chat scores of users started finding Facebook chat inappropriate.

We have got a solution to your redress. Now you can revert back to the Old Facebook Chat: (Follow the link below relevant to your browser)

Google Chrome

Opera
